How bout installing a 230mm fan on the side panel and ~3 Scythe Kama Bays as intakes?

Good work by the way :)

Honestly, when I saw the first pic of the case you were going to start with... eeeeew :shok:

But you aren't even done and it looks seriously sweet!

Anyone can go out and buy a mountain mods case if they want, but not everyone has the drive to do something like this. The coolest things are always one offs that you make yourself.

Excellent work!:thumb:

Here's some other miscellaneous things that are going into the case:

The fan mounts... since the original couldn't hold 3 fans in a row... since there was no bracket for that, which made my case look super funky. :

As you guys can see, I tried using mighty putty to bond the cross members together... that failed miserably LOL, but that might be because I was so impatient with the curing process...

Oh this bad boy is going into the case. So the whole story went like this... I got an i7 with two 3870s in crossfire... then I downgraded and sold one of the cards... then in the middle of my modding, I sold my remaining 3870... so now I'm replacing it with this beast. (got the 768 MB because I can't afford the 1 GB =( ). Presenting the EVGA GTX 460:

Next update will be coming shortly (maybe in an hour) with my water cooling setup inside.

Thanks jcmaz!

I would buy something like that but I think I got the problem solved with my post after yours. But I totally didn't know that those existed. LOL. Also about that side panel fan, I would buy something like that, however I'm planning on cutting out a window on the side panel when I have time after... but that's for my second project when I actually have a garage to work in =P

Which reminds me, I shouldn't call this build The Reform 2.0, it should be 1.0 LOL

So what do you guys think of the final product? of course there are a few mistakes and a few spots that I left out, but judging by the amount of time I have on my hands, I think I'll have to enjoy what I have now and just mod the case later in life.

tell me what you guys think, and I'll reply insta fast ! =D

Thanks for looking!

Have you thought about sealing the 2 holes on the top?

Nah, not really, I'm thinking about doing something about that spot later when I have access to a milling machine or something, I wanna put the name of the comp up there

edit:lol I guess I did think about it then eh? =P

I personally think that it looks great... excellent job!!

Thanks dudddee!
